It's Good To Talk

‘A Creative Conversation’ is a wide-ranging exhibition featuring four north-east artists that you can see at Gateshead Library.

And the four local artists taking part in this exhibition are Ali Barden, Dave Barden, Keith Shaw and Diane Westwood. Lockdown provided a timeframe for these four professionals and good friends to focus on a creative project where collaboration, interaction and dissemination were key. Themes were discussed and agreed and over a period of four months, each artist produced work in their chosen medium – mixed media sculpture, ceramics, textiles and paintings. Regular Zoom meetings facilitated the sharing and exchange of ideas and evaluation of the work in progress. On completion of the work, it was decided that there was enough interest to share in an exhibition. Good decision.

A Creative Conversation, until 7 January, Upstairs Gallery, Gateshead Central Library. eventbrite.co.uk/o/gateshead-libraries-32442560287
